Prescriptions sent directly to the local pharmacists
The practice and the local pharmacists offer a service to enable patients to collect their medication from the pharmacy of their choice, in Church Stretton. Please inform us and state which pharmacist you prefer to use.
Patients are being asked to "Think Twice" before asking their GP to prescribe over-the-counter medications such as Paracetamol for common or short-term ailments.
Shropshire practices spend £1.3 million on medicines which are easily available to purchase from your local pharmacy or supermarkets. Patients have a responsibility to look after themselves and their children where possible, and manage self-limiting minor ailments with support from their local pharmacy if needed. Please see the link below for further details:
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
When collecting your repeat prescriptions from the chemist, please check you have everything you ordered before leaving the shop and query the shortfall with them at the time if necessary. There are several reasons why some of the items from your order may have become separated from each other:
- Acute (not a repeat) medication may have been issued on a different prescription and may be in a different bag.
- There is a legal requirement for the chemist to store specific drugs separately in a locked cupboard and you may not have been given this bag.
- The doctor may have had to reauthorize some items which may have been issued on a different day.
- Prescription requests from the hospital take time, as the doctor has to add it to the patient's current medication list and confirm there is no interaction with any existing medication.
